“When I chose to begin working with Adelina, I was someone who would look at a page of job listings with tears in my eyes. I believed that, despite having multiple degrees, I could never be what anyone was looking for – either because I didn’t meet all of the qualifications, or because I took a break in my professional life to focus on parenting. Adelina helped me to better understand my fears, to see WHY they were present, and what options I had to engage with those fears in new ways.
She also came equipped with lots of practical resources, the most helpful of which for me was the Personal Agility System (PAS). This system not only gave me a helpful framework in which to organize the tasks which truly matter to me as a person (and not just a job-hunting automaton), but it also helped me to live that truth out loud with my children. It helped me to show them that Mom is a multifaceted person, who allocates a place in her heart and her day for both work and family. They’ve learned to respect my work more highly, resting in the trust that they don’t matter to me any less.
Adelina is deeply kind, sincere and supportive, but make no mistake – she won’t do your work for you! Come to sessions prepared with questions and clear determinations for what you want to get out of the time. I did, and as a result, I went from avoiding my job search to landing triple the amount of job interviews I used to get. But most importantly, I have more confidence that my unique profile has something valuable to offer to the world of work, and I am grateful Adelina could be a part of my journey.”

“Adelina proved to be the right person to meet when these challenging times highlighted that I required professional guidance in readjusting with my home country and finding a new job after many years abroad. Her professionalism and genuine empathy coupled with excellent mentorship and coach capabilities in the framework of Personal Agility, in which she excels, helped me reset my priorities in terms of work life balance and have a clear strategy in achieving my goals. I would highly recommend her professional help to anyone looking to focus on what really matters in terms of life and work balance”

“I have always seen Adelina’s name come up as a recommendation for a career coach, so when I realized I needed one, I didn’t hesitate to reach out to get to know her. And I’m glad I did. Adelina has a special ability to meet me where I am at every session, to be fully present, to flex between coach and mentor and to make it fun. Most importantly, I always walked away with insights and pragmatic tools to support my needs.
Adelina’s mix of competencies and expertise cam across strongly as she integrated all of them in a way that was valuable to me and my situation. I am grateful for Adelina and the impact she is able to have on me and everyone else she works with.”

“Last year (December 2020) I have been looking for a quality coaching school to start my journey. I have posted my question in Facebook group of coaching professionals and the first person to reply was Adelina! She provided full support and encouraged me to start my professional coaching journey even earlier than I planned. Adelina is very goal-oriented person and works on her development continuously and consistently.
By doing this she is serving and providing high-quality coaching and business support to her clients. Adelina also can be related to the new generation of leaders. She always sees the potential in people and clients and pulls people upwards by helping them to grow and learn. I have been challenged and invited by Adelina to take on new learnings and development opportunities several times in 2021.
And all of them were successful and valuable for my development. Adelina’s coaching and mentoring style is very soft and polite, and she builds the trust with people very quickly.”

She was structured, professional, sharp and amazingly courteous. I would highly recommend Adelina for you or your team members.“
Sales Director, Switzerland
“Since moving into a new country, I found myself becoming lost, discouraged and without hope, that I would find the employment I was seeking. It was becoming so overwhelming, as I had dedicated so much time to progressing in that field, that I began considering roles for the sake of employment.
Adelina was my number 1 support. Her passionate commitment and professional guidance and support, led me to find my path – after months and months of anxious job searching, I am feeling so incredibly excited and hopeful. Adelina has helped me rediscover my self-confidence and my strengths. Without her, I would not be entering this exciting new chapter, and I am so incredibly thankful.“
